  • SOUTH African Hip-Hop Award (SAHHA) winning rapper, event organiser and writer Brian dot Khoza is launching his poetry book titled Smiling After Lost Love (Poems from my teens and early twenties this Saturday, June 3 at La Casa, in Quarry Road.

The book is currently a free e-book on gumroad.com/briandotkhoza along with other works. The poetry collection is meant to show that relationships can end without abuse or tragedy as is common in South Africa.

The launch will start at 1 pm with several poems from the book being read by friends, including reflexologist Glynis Meier of Body Scents, poet Ndu Zondi and Africa Must Read’s Hlengiwe Zuma.

The hosts of #SmilingAfter Poetry Sessions will be Peekay and Anthea Piettersen, the deejay will be Fluwid and Lady Bean will sell books at the launch and at Rosehurst in Boom Street.

Firespinner Shu will do an LED fire dance and as is the norm with Brian dot Khoza’s #SmilingAfter Poetry Sessions, there’ll be poetry and hip hop performances until 4 pm.

Nubian Queen, who is a graduate and employee of the University of KwaZulu-Natal, will perform spoken word poetry and the main poet will be Luleka Mhlanzi who performs as Confiscated Identity.

She is a performing poet, actress, youth facilitator and creative writer. She is co-founder of Pot of Art with artist Kwazi Ndlangisa.

Brian dot Khoza will perform songs from his EP Player Poetry: Learning To Respect Women and rapper Zolani G will close the event.

Zolani G is a hip-hop artist whose sound is best described as the perfect marriage of 90’s Golden Era of hip-hop with modern hip-hop and poetry influences.

With a poetry background, Zolani always tries to paint the most vivid picture for his listeners with wordplay that sufficiently expresses his topics.

Zolani’s music looks at the journey of a modern young male, perfectly gift wrapped with hard hip-hop kicks and snares — and his deep voice making it easy to listen and follow the narrative.
